With over 50 buildings in severe condition, UNC's maintenance costs keep growing

UNC’s deferred maintenance backlog has grown to over $900 million and counting. The facilities condition index is a ratio of remedying a building’s deficiencies relative to the current building replacement value. A building in good condition has an FCI of less than or equal to 0.05; fair condition if between 0.05 and 0.10; poor condition if between 0.10 and 0.30, and severe condition if greater than 0.30. The average for all UNC buildings is 0.19, falling in the poor condition category.
